I've enjoyed photographing these Peregrine Falcons that nest along the cliffs in
southern California. These cliff nests allow us to
photograph the parents and fledglings as they fly, hunt, and feed - many times
at eye level. We spend the morning shooting the falcons at either San Pedro or Rancho Palos
Verdes, then we head
over to Huntington Beach after lunch to shoot songbirds there. Also,
Huntington Beach has a large population of
African and Asian exotics that live and nest here: Orange Bishop,
Nutmeg Manniken, Pin-tailed Whydah, Orange-cheeked Waxbills, and the Red-whiskered
We meet at either my home in Tulare for those riding south to Los
Angeles with me, or in Los Angeles itself if you live closer. We travel down
to photograph the falcons and have lunch in
Huntington Beach. We usually finish around 3pm or so.
The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, or credit card, and
the balance is due halfway between the deposit date and the safari
date unless you are booking within 3 months, then full payment is
due. Check the main safari page for other information.
I've spent my 40-year wildlife photography career shooting
in the American West. The first 24
years shooting out of Utah, the past 16 years out of
California. The photo safaris that I lead are all to
the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife
activity periods. What a rush it has been.
Difficulty Level :
weather on the coast can change so dress in layers, though
we should have cool mornings and pleasant afternoons, and
possibly the marine layer.
